Chevrolet Cobalt Used Car Buyer's Guide

For 2009, the sedan got the turbocharged SS engine. For the normally aspirated Cobalt models, the 145-horsepower, 2.4-lliter was dropped in favor of a 155-horsepower, 2.2-liter four-cylinder, which made 150 ft-lbs of torque.

For model year 2009, just as in 2008, the trim designations ran pretty much in parallel between the coupe and the sedan. The LTZ model was dropped in 2008 and the Sport model was dropped in 2009 (in favor of a sport appearance package). Thus the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt’s trim line went; LS, LT and SS for both the coupe and sedan.

Standard features on the LS included 15-inch steel wheels, OnStar telematics, A/C, a tilt steering wheel, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, and a trip computer. An AM/FM/CD/MP3/satellite radio/auxiliary audio input jack head end unit fed four-speaker stereo system.

The 2009 LT added power windows, mirrors and door locks, remote keyless entry, a nicer set of front seats and a center armrest.

Options packages added an automatic transmission, traction control, four-wheel antilock brakes, remote start, a cargo net, cruise control and 16-inch aluminum wheels.

The LT trim level also featured a sport appearance package that laced the Cobalt with a rear spoiler, foglights, 17-inch alloy wheels and lower profile tires, sport-oriented front and rear fascias, Bluetooth hand-free telephone operation, and a set of white-faced sport instrumentation gauges. The sport appearance package’s leather-wrapped steering wheel hosted remote audio and cruise controls.

The 2009 SS models got the turbocharged engine, 18-inch wheels with high performance low profile tires, a lowered and firmer sport-tuned suspension, Brembo front brakes, distinctive SS exterior and interior styling cues, more heavily bolstered sport seats upholstered with a faux suede fabric, Bluetooth hands-free telephony, and the ubiquitous A-pillar mounted Cobalt SS turbo boost gauge. A limited-slip front differential was optional for the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt SS.

Full-length side curtain airbags were standard on all 2009 Chevy Cobalts. Most came with a front-disc and rear-drum brake configuration; SS models ran performance-tuned four-wheel disc brakes, with the front calipers provided by Brembo. ABS was optional for LS and LT Cobalts, but standard on the SS iterations of the car. If an ABS-equipped model was ordered with an automatic transmission, traction control was included at no extra cost.

2010 Chevrolet Cobalt

With the new Chevrolet Cruze already visible on the horizon, Chevrolet sent the Cobalt into 2010 with no significant changes.

Chevrolet Cobalt

Motor vehicle

The Chevrolet Cobalt is a compact car introduced by Chevrolet in 2004 for the 2005 model year. The Cobalt replaced both the Cavalier and the Toyota-based Geo/Chevrolet Prizm as Chevrolet's compact car. The Cobalt was available as both a coupe and sedan, as well as a sport compact version dubbed the Cobalt SS. Like the Chevrolet HHR and the Saturn ION, it was based on the GM Delta platform.

A Pontiac version was sold in the United States and Mexico under the G5 name for 2007–2009. It was sold as the Pontiac G4 in Mexico for 2005–2006 and as the Pontiac G5 in Canada for its entire run (where it was briefly known as the Pontiac Pursuit and later Pontiac G5 Pursuit). The G5 replaced the Cavalier-related Pontiac Sunfire. While the Cobalt was available as a 2-door coupe and a 4-door sedan in all markets it was offered in, the G5 was only available as a coupé in the United States while a sedan version was sold alongside the coupé in Canada and Mexico.

As with their predecessors, all Cobalts and its Pontiac equivalents were manufactured at GM's plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico and Lordstown, Ohio. The United States Environmental Protection Agency classified the Cobalt as a subcompact car.[1]

Specifications[edit]

The front suspension was independent with MacPherson struts, while a semi-independent torsion beam was used in the rear. The wheelbase was 103.3 in (2,624 mm), longer than its competitors, and the width was 68.4 in (1,737 mm). Weight was average in-class, at 2,681 lb (1,216 kg) for the coupe and 2,747 lb (1,246 kg) for the sedan. For 2009, the United States Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy was increased to 24 mpg‑US (9.8 L/100 km; 29 mpg‑imp) city/34 mpg‑US (6.9 L/100 km; 41 mpg‑imp) highway with automatic transmission, and 26 mpg‑US (9.0 L/100 km; 31 mpg‑imp) city/37 mpg‑US (6.4 L/100 km; 44 mpg‑imp) highway with manual transmission. The engine output was increased to 155 hp (116 kW).

Year-to-year changes[edit]

  • 2006: A non-supercharged Cobalt SS was added to the lineup. This car was equipped with a 2.4 L naturally aspirated Ecotecinline-4. The LS became the base model while the LT was marketed as a mid-range package; the top level trim was now the LTZ. In addition, as with most other GM vehicles that year, GM's Mark of Excellence symbol was added to both front fenders near the doors.
  • 2007: Both engines were retuned for more power while retaining the same fuel economy. The 2.2 L Ecotec was now rated at 148 hp (110 kW) with the 2.4 L Ecotec rated at 173 hp (129 kW). Other changes include a new console, new steering wheel and new radio head unit that features an audio input jack. In addition, all models except the LS and LT1 now used a 5x110 wheel bolt pattern. The LS and LT1 retained the standard 4x100. In addition, the 2007 model year marked the introduction of a new 32-bit computer that replaced the 16-bit unit from 2006.
  • 2008: The 2.4 L naturally aspirated, high-output SS coupe and SS sedan were renamed to just "Sport Coupe" and "Sport Sedan" respectively. The new Cobalt SS features a 260 hp (194 kW) turbocharged engine, replacing the Supercharged engine which was offered from 2005–2007. At mid-year, the fuel economy was increased to 25 mpg‑US (9.4 L/100 km; 30 mpg‑imp)5.5–7.5 km/liter city, 36 mpg‑US (6.5 L/100 km; 43 mpg‑imp)9–11 km/lite highway on the LS and 1LT, coupe and sedan models with manual transmission; now labeled with XFE badging (X-tra Fuel Economy).[3] XM Radio, side-impact air bags for improved safety, and MP3 player were now standard instead of optional. StabiliTrak stability control system was introduced. Other changes included the adding and removal of several exterior and interior colors. The new SS (turbocharged) coupe launched near the end of May 2008, as it was a facelift from the 2005–2007 version.
  • 2008 (Special Edition "Revolution" Package): The special edition package for the Cobalt was introduced on August 16, 2008, which featured all the options that were available on the previous SS models except the turbocharged 2.0 engine. Instead it was once again built with the 2.4 naturally aspirated engine similar to the Cobalt Sport models. The special edition package could come with a sunroof, GM ground effects kit, the Getrag F23 5-speed manual transmission, and additionally the 5 lug wheel bearings that the SS editions featured. The special editions were all had a "Special Edition" badge and came with unique variations of colors, and racing stripes.[citation needed]
  • 2009: The 2.4 L naturally aspirated "Sport Coupe and "Sport Sedan" models were both deleted, along with the 2.2 L L61 engine. Both were replaced by the 2.2 L LAP engine thus providing better fuel economy and more power. Also, a 2.0 LNF Turbo SS sedan was added to the lineup. Three exterior colors were changed, and an interior color deleted. Bluetooth capabilities were added. An option for a reconfigurable performance display [4] available on the SS coupe, could read out various engine output data and alter performance settings.
  • 2009 (Team Canada Edition Package): For Canada, a "Team Canada Edition Package" was offered beginning in 2009 and continuing into the 2010 model year for the LT.
  • 2010: The car was replaced by the Chevy Cruze.[5] In Canada, the Team Canada Edition Package was now standard on all LT models, and side-impact head curtain air bags were finally standard on all models.

Safety[edit]

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) the Cobalt receives an overall top score of "Good" for front collisions.[6] However, it receives a "Poor" overall score for side impacts without side curtain airbags,[7] and an "Acceptable" overall score with side curtain airbags.[8] In 2008, side curtain airbags became standard, but the Cobalt's structure remains the same and consequently in structure/safety category of the IIHS's side impact test the Cobalt receives a "Marginal" score. Side airbags are limited to the curtain type; torso type side airbags are unavailable.[9] According to the IIHS's injury measurements taken from the side impact test, the driver's torso is given a "Marginal" score.

The IIHS also found 2005-08 model year Cobalts had the highest fatality rate in the small 4 door car class, with 117 deaths per million registered years compared to its class average of 71.[10]

2010 NHTSA sedan crash test:[11]

Before 2009 the Cobalt only offered stability control as an option on Sport models.[9]

Defects and recalls[edit]

In early 2007, 98,000 Cobalt coupes from the 2005–06 model years were recalled after it was discovered they did not meet federal safety requirements because of a lack of adequate padding in a specific area of the vehicle's trim. This resulted in an unacceptable vulnerability to head injuries, though GM claimed the vulnerability would only affect motorists not wearing a seat belt.[12]

On March 2, 2010, GM announced a recall of 1.3 million compact cars in North America, including the Chevrolet Cobalt, because of power steering problems.[13] GM implemented the repair on older models before fixing more recent models, as the car was replaced by the Chevrolet Cruze in late 2010. The Pontiac G5 and its international variants were also affected, though GM had already ended production of the Pontiac brand by that point.

On September 28, 2012, GM announced a recall of 40,859 cars including the Chevrolet Cobalt from the 2007-09 model year because of a potential fuel leak. Although the recall was limited to five states, vehicles from other southern states were covered for repair when summer heat caused cracks in the fuel reservoir assembly. The fuel vapor leak could be detected during hot days by a gasoline smell in the vicinity of the car.[14]

Faulty ignition switches in the Cobalts, which cut power to the car while in motion, were eventually linked to many crashes resulting in fatalities, starting with a teenager in 2005 who drove her new Cobalt into a tree.[15] The switch continued to be used in the manufacture of the vehicles even after the problem was known to GM.[16] On February 21, 2014, GM recalled over 700,000 Cobalts for issues traceable to the defective ignition switches. In May 2014 the NHTSA fined the company $35 million for failing to recall cars with faulty ignition switches for a decade, despite knowing there was a problem with the switches. Thirteen deaths were linked to the faulty switches during the time the company failed to recall the cars.[17][18]

Pontiac G5[edit]

The Pontiac G5 was a rebadged version of the Chevrolet Cobalt.

The Pontiac Pursuit was originally introduced in Canada as a sedan in 2005. The Pontiac Pursuit was only available as a sedan and was only sold in Canada from 2005 to 2006. In 2006, another version of the vehicle was released called the Pontiac G5 Pursuit in Canada, but it was now available as both a sedan and a coupe. This vehicle was available as both a sedan and coupe also in Mexico as the Pontiac G4 from 2005 to 2006.

In the United States, the Pontiac G5 went on sale in 2006 as a 2007 model, serving as the replacement for the Pontiac Sunfire. The Pontiac G5 in the United States was only available as a coupe. However, in Canada, and in Mexico, the Pontiac G5 went on sale in early 2007 as a 2007 model, available as both a sedan and coupe.

General Motors discontinued the Pontiac G5 in the United States in 2009. One year later in 2010, General Motors discontinued the Pontiac G5 in both Canada and Mexico. The G5 was discontinued as a direct result of General Motors phasing out the Pontiac brand in 2010. In the United States and in Mexico, the Chevrolet Cruze had replaced both Chevrolet Cobalt and the Pontiac G5. The Buick Verano had replaced the Pontiac G5 in Canada.

Replacement[edit]

Main article: Chevrolet Cruze

In 2009, Chevrolet launched the Cobalt's eventual successor, the Chevrolet Cruze (based on the new Delta II platform), in Europe, with launches in other markets (including the US) following in 2010. The Cobalt ended production on June 23, 2010.[21] With the discontinuation of the Pontiac brand by GM in 2010, the Buick Verano is marketed as the G5's successor in Canada, while the Cruze serves as a de facto replacement for the Pontiac G5 in the United States.

Gallery[edit]

Second generation (2011)[edit]

Motor vehicle

In 2011, General Motors Brazil introduced a new model bearing the Cobalt name in the Brazilian market.[23] This Cobalt replaced the aging local Chevrolet Astra. The car is equipped with a 1.4 Econo.Flex engine. Although sporting a similar front end style, it is not directly related to the Chevrolet Agile, since it shares the overall underpinnings with the 2011 Chevrolet Sonic,[24] while the Agile is derived from the considerably older Opel Corsa B, from 1993.

Chevrolet had no plans to bring the Cobalt to the North American market, which already had the Chevrolet Sonic and Chevrolet Spark as the subcompact cars in the continent. In GM Brazil's line-up, it is situated above the Chevrolet Prisma and below the Chevrolet Cruze.

In January 2013, the Cobalt was launched in the Russian market, where it was imported from Uzbekistan.[25] There, it was offered with a 1.5-litre engine, producing 77 kW (105 PS) and 134 N⋅m (99 lb⋅ft).[26] The Cobalt was retired in Russia in December 2015, when Chevrolet decided to minimise its presence only to its iconic models. However, in late 2016, it was reintroduced under the new Ravon marque as the Ravon R4.[22]

The Chevrolet Cobalt was assembled in Colombia too. It was equipped with a simple range of two versions and a single 1.8-liter 8-valve 106-horsepower engine. With a very discreet commercial performance and a taxi variant, its production in the Colombian market ended in early 2016.[27]

2017 Chevrolet Cobalt 1.8 LTZ (Facelift)

The Cobalt received a facelift in late 2015 for the 2016 model year.[28][29] Its main rivals are the Nissan Versa and the Renault Logan.[24]

In Brazil, production ended in late 2019, with 2020 being the final model year. The Cobalt has been succeeded by the Chevrolet Onix Plus sedan, which achieved higher sales upon its launch in 2019.[30]

Cobalt resides at No. 27 on the periodic table, sandwiched between iron and nickel on a working-class street that's also home to copper, zinc, and manganese. It's nature's industrial rust belt, the Lower Cuyahoga of the atomic scale. Chevy probably chose the name because cobalt is used as a hardener in high-performance alloys such as those found in aircraft jet turbines. After 23 years of building the Chevy Cavalier, GM's small-car credentials could stand a little hardening, too.

During a recent lull in California's monsoon season, Chevy allowed a press gaggle to turn miles in 2005 Cobalt models, including the 145-hp, 2.2-liter sedan and base coupe and the 205-hp supercharged 2.0-liter SS coupe (a 175-hp, 2.4-liter engine option comes later in '05). Initial skepticism ran at redline. The Cobalt shares General Motors' front-drive Delta platform with the Saturn Ion, the sensational belly-flop of model year 2003. How good could the bow-tie version be?

As it happens, it's astoundingly good--an Olympic long jump for GM, from dead last to the head of the class, right up front with the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. You may have already gleaned that from our first Cobalt preview last July. We alluded to superb interior trim that mimics a Volkswagen's; the fancy hydroelastic rear-suspension bushings that pacify the ride (and cost GM $30 extra per car, according to vice-chairman Bob Lutz); a cabin soundproofed to luxury-car stillness by multiple door seals, molded acoustic pads, and 37 pounds of laminated "quiet steel"; and the Euro-'spensive Continental and Pirelli tires.

Here's what we didn't know then: The $21,995 Cobalt SS--it comes only as a coupe and only with a five-speed manual--puts a heavy horsepower dollop on top of a taut, refined handling package. Forward of your feet is an extensively reworked version of GM's Ecotec 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine, augmented by an Eaton M62 twin-rotor, or Roots-type, supercharger with a peak blow of 12.0 psi and an integrated air-to-water intercooler that flushes away unwanted charge heat. Headlining the Ecotec's internal mods are a forged steel crank, sodium-filled exhaust valves, an oil cooler, and oil-jet cooling of the pistons. The package supplies 205 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 200 pound-feet of torque at 4400 rpm--all saddled to about 2900 pounds.

A boost gauge on the left A-pillar twitches to the rhythms of the blower. Other accouterments include a better stereo, leather seats with body-color inserts, and a leather-wrapped shifter and steering wheel. Chevy will offer a Performance package early this year, price as yet unknown, with Recaro seats and a Quaife limited-slip diff.

Steer the SS Supercharged into a corner with confidence. GM handling guru John Heinricy, director of high-performance vehicle operations and a dinkum racer himself, has already been there 1000 times before, sharpening out the understeer and flattening out the roll and wallow. Behind the 18-inch alloy wheels and 215/45 tires is the FE5 suspension with a larger front anti-roll bar, stiffer springs, and aluminum L-shaped control arms anchoring the front struts. They replace the base Cobalt's FE1 suspension and its steel arms. The rear stays a Cobalt-standard twist-beam axle.

Tuning the forward control arms' all-important bushings, which must be both squishy for bump absorption and firm for handling, was a trick, said Heinricy. The work happened at Heinricy's finishing school on the Nürburgring in Germany and at other tracks back in the U.S., including GM's new 2.9-mile handling course at the Milford, Michigan, proving ground that engineers have dubbed the "Lutzring," after Bob Lutz. Special high-stiffness bushings with small air pockets for shock absorption supplied the necessary compromise in ride and handling, and engineers devised a calibration for the electric-assist steering that keeps effort relatively low but precision surprisingly high.

Over the twisting trails of Santa Barbara County, a Quaife-equipped SS laid the power down smoothly and ate the apexes with fast reflexes and stable course control. The Dodge SRT-4 supplies more horsepower and torque for a few hundred bucks less, but it's a rough-and-tumble street fighter. The Cobalt SS Supercharged trades on its refined civility, two words we don't normally associate with a GM economy car. But then cobalt isn't a metal we normally consider precious.
